Here’s the breakdown:
- ♥ To save up $1,000 in 5 months – just in time for my birthday / Valentine’s Day / wedding anniversary
Technically this seems fairly simple, considering it only takes $200 each month to save up $1,000 in 5 months. However, considering the paltry sum I earn from doing admin for a non-profit organisation, $200 is half my salary. Which means after deducting my own bills (necessities, bills, etc), I won’t be able to spend anything more than $50 on anything “unnecessary”.
This is highly difficult for a spendthrift like me, even if it means I could probably blow the $1000 on some mid-range luxury brand bag once I hit my target. I’m pretty short-sighted when it comes to stuff like that. Buying a $30 dress now sounds way more appealing than saving for 5 months to get myself a $1k bag.
♥ To lose 1000 grams (aka 1 kg) in 3 months – just in time for X’mas
Essentially not a difficult task, but considering how I don’t count calories and always give in to whatever I feel like eating… this may be another challenge.
Currently I’ve been maintaining at 67.5kg for the past month or so, and that 0.5kg is irking the hell out of me simply because it’s not a “nice round number”. So while technically I should lose either be losing 0.5kg or 1.5kg. I just decided to round it to 1kg for the heck of making it a 2-step “Project 1K”. I’ll deal with the other 500 grams later.
I’m going to start with basic cardio exercises on an alternate day basis, coupled with light weight training (1kg weights sponsored by Hubs) and core exercises to attempt at flattening out this jelly belly. Fingers crossed, since I’m not exactly known to keep up with my own goals. :p
